Is your man into football? How about a card like this for him? The Anglomania collection from Craftwork Cards. I think its really versatile - great for football fans but also in the pack are some gorgeous dotty, spotty and striped papers so great for all types of cards.
Up close for the finer details.
There are great die cuts in the collection as well as sentiments. I added card candy between the circles on the printed papers to add interest and dimension.
